Ask Video Search


https://www.ask.com/youtube

Since 2008 Ask offers a video search. A contract with Blinkx enabled Ask to offer the content of one of the leading video search engines at the time via its own search portal. Blinxx itself was discontinued in 2017. Currently (2019) the content of YouTube is being searched. Whether another video search engine has been used in the meantime cannot be said. The content can be filtered by popularity, length and quality.

Barry Schwartz (2007): »Blinkx Strikes Ask.com Video Search-Engine Deal from CNNMoney.com reports that video search engine Blinkx will power Ask.com’s video search.

This deal will give Ask.com access to Blinkx’s 12 million hours of audio and video content. Each time a user searches for Blinkx’s content, Ask.com has agreed to pay a fee, according to the release. Reportedly, a Blinkx area on the Ask.com site will be how users access the audio and video content.

“Ask.com’s momentum is impressive and we’re very proud to be powering their new video search offering,” said Suranga Chandratillake, founder and CEO, blinkx. “This relationship further demonstrates our technology leadership in the video search space and is an exciting development for our 130 or so media partners whose content can now be accessed through Ask.com.”« Source
